Anyone else like "realistic" low-poly environments? I gotta admit that I'm an absolute slut for low-poly bathrooms, especially if you can flick the light-switches, use all the fixtures and flush the toilets for no real reason. If there was a mod for Half Life 1 where all you do is walk around Black Mesa messing with equipment and bugging scientists, I'd play that shit for hours.

You a word

VTMR. It combines the oddest set of like really okayish textures and some okay looking graphics with some really atrociously bad ones. Apparently when it come out it was considered pretty revolutionary in graphics, I think like year 2000. It's what I'd call a bridge-game: something just between two eras of gaming showing you aspects of both. It plays and feels very much like a late 90s game with certain features of the era alongside a lot of more modern conventions. One of these is the typical 1-2-3-4 style of breaking levels up into sections and a complete lack of any real narrative choice among other things pretty typical of a lot of 90s games. It has a lot in common with Deus Ex tbh.

The writing is also bad. Like it's not absolutely atrocious but it's still pretty terrible a lot of the time, and for some bizarre reason a 13th century crusader from central Europe talks like fake Shakespierre from Britain centuries later. I think this was their weirdly juvenile attempt at making characters sound "old school" and more early medieval. The plot itself is bad. The gameplay is pretty shit in terms of your party AI. With that said it's still a fun game and has a VTMB tier soundtrack.

Major spoilers in this video (first half anyway) but it should give you an idea

It's frustratingly difficult, moreso because controls and your party members tend to immediately use all their blood on the first sign of trouble and then immediately freak out and attack you or each other because they have no blood left.

I just discovered this multiplayer version of Ace Of Spades, it's basically Lego Counterstrike.
Most importantly, my antique computer can play it!
Can you gais come play? I desperately want to play with a team who will actually build the tower to reach the enemy intel and win the game instead of putting 100% of their time and effort into building huge swastikas.

PS I heard in online chat during the game that the reason there were so many players is someone has been shilling on imageboards. I am not that shill, I am shilling by myself. Which is stupid, I should totally be getting paid for this. How the fuck do you advertise as an imageboard shill, is there a fucking Craigslist or something? Do you mind if I use you as a reference? I think I shill real good.

OP here, just uninstalled Openspades, I got banned for shooting at a griefer blocking our stairs on Babel. I might try again in a few years if the current culture of hackers and griefers with friends in Aloha admin is gone by then.
I could protest on their forum, but fuck 'em. What's the point if the base problem of officials enabling cheaters is still a factor?

It was built from the ground up in a specific way. There's a lot the engine can't do. But what it does, it can do extremely fast.

I remember playing this game on a netbook. 60FPS

>Granblue Fantasy Versus is a fighting game based on the characters and world from the mobile game, which is sort of a lite JRPG for battles and a VN for story elements

Granblue Fantasy Versus confirmed for North American release. XSEED publishing it so that means an uncensored PC version is guaranteed. They always do PC ports and they always uncensor them.

The game is being localized internally by Cygames, they're just using Xseed for distribution because they don't have any offices in the US. I wouldn't be surprised if the European release is by a company unrelated to Marvelous.

Grinding is any slightly repetitive action that's required in a game in order to advance. If it's endless clicking that's probably the nadir of grind. Intelligent grind gives you some challenges in order to maximize its efficacy, but also allows you to grind like a moron if you want to. The earlier Dragon Quest games are good examples of this. They offer pretty thoughtfully-crafted risk vs reward in your grind, and you always have the option to try your luck in a harsher area.

In an intelligent grind game, ideally almost the entire world should be open to you from the beginning, but only your pitiful level and possibly poor tactics prevent you from traveling further.

Do you guys like roguelikes? I'm not much of a gamer anymore, these are by and large the only games I play unless a friend wants to do something in some online game. Sometimes I also like building games, mostly modded minecraft, but that's not what this thread is about.

Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup is my favorite at the moment and by far the one I'm the best at. Anyone else play it? I've got a dozen or so wins after a couple years of playing here and there but consistently for months at a time. I'm trying to get a 15 rune win before I move onto another roguelike but for my sanity I might just settle for 8 or more because 7 is my current best. I think I'll move onto either getting back into Nethack or finally cracking Dwarf Fortress after this.

This is my current character for anyone who plays this game. Got through all of the dungeon, lair, orcish mines, swamp, and snake pit and now I'm trying to figure out what the best course of action is. Depths has a ridiculous pack of monsters right off the bat so I just noped out. I cleared about half of Vaults:1 before I ran into a pack of huge ugly things and almost died. Might go back there because I think depths is a little too hard for me right now as it is. Not my usual order but oh well.

Ok drops so far, the lajatang of order will come in handy in the abyss which I plan on getting in and out of as fast as possible, Going for polearms and a +11 bardiche of speed with 20 polearms is gonna be tough to beat I think but I don't really know I've never found one before. Going for a balance of AC and EV which I also haven't tried before but so far is better than just focusing one or the other, at least for now. I have 10 in throwing which is enough to use nets decently if need be. Next thing I need to train is invocations, I'm not sure after that, I need ranged so I might as well get back into throwing, I haven't really put a lot into int yet so I might go with evocations over spells for the time being but I don't think I'll ever be a formidable caster of anything even into extended, but who knows, maybe going with medium armor will make casting more viable.

Angband or a fork is on my bucket list as well. I've just barely heard of Infra Arcana so I'll have to look into it.

Out of curiosity, what didn't you like about DCSS? A lot of people don't like it for a lot of different reasons. I like it because it's fairly accessible and streamlined while not being too easy and still having substance, in my opinion. It does have its problems though.

Can you play planescape on your new pc? Because my windows 8 pc doesnt. It doesnt play star/warcraft or diablo or baldurs gate. And I have the discs for all of those, they still dont work. Went to a pc store and they were like "newer pcs dont usually run games from before 2002". And thats fucking bullshit. The only old game my pc plays is fallout 1/2. Which is cool, but id like to be able to play all those other games. Oh and morrowind on pc has no controller support without 3rd party programs, fuck that shit. I also dont really care for rts's or games like Xcom and civilization really, crpgs yea but most of those are on console. And how much does it cost to keep upgrading your computer every year? I asked around at a couple computer store on how much a pc that runs witcher 3 would be, $500. 100 bucks more than a 1tb ps4, plus id have to buy a nice pc controller and speakers, and I still wouldnt be able to play starcraft or baldurs gate. And you didnt answer my question of when PC will have red dead redemption 2. I also prefer the console exclusives to pc exclusives, but thats a matter of preference. Pcs are only good to me for emulation. How else am I going to play translated ps2 roms?

solo its very boring, MP if you have some friends who like this kind of game is good

in the current build the only interesting game mode to play is 6 months later which they call "the recommended zomboid experience" no water no power and very rare drops and very rare/damaged cars, this seems to be the only balanced game mode with a challenge

all i do is, get a car go north, raid all country houses. that food will run out in under 3 months then use all your ammo and weapons fighting into town areas for more skillbooks or food etc

longest time survived 2 years on regular game mode nearly 1 year on hardcore i tend to reply every 6 months to see how the game is progressing

Not to mention that Capcom was pretty fucked up in ps3/xbox360 generation by doing some of the worst practically wrong business decisions.
It's not that they're doing good because they fucking care about their community, the thing is that they're trying to save their asses.

His lungs are augmented


I always play Deus Ex trying to mimic The Major's powers from Ghost in the Shell, since this game is like a ramshackle American version of that movie where YOU are the morally questionable philosophizing cybernetic G-man. JC and Kusanagi even both merge with an AI at the end. Invisibility, super speed / jumping, and enhanced lifting strength are the most important ones, then you can get around every level in ways you're not supposed to and snipe everyone through the windows while invisible. Kick ass.

I played it when it came out and it was like nothing that existed at the time.

It still gives a sense of mystery and complexity most games lack. There was a lot of thought out into it.

The ending bit gets a little tedious, though.

What even is my life about anymore? I used to love getting lost in a fantasy world losing all sense of time and now I just can't do it. I can't enjoy games anymore. The few times I do have a free afternoon I don't even bother trying because I don't know when my next free hours will be. I cant enjoy a game if I am constantly looking at the clock thinking "Ok I better start getting ready for bed I have work early tomorrow."
I don't even have weekends anymore because I got a girlfriend (and who could have predicted that?) and when shes not available I have a backlog of adulating shit I need to get done.

I haven't seriously played a game in nearly a year. I can't even enjoy casual bullshit phone games because it's all full of "GIVE US MONEY" bait which just ruins it. I wanna be fucking lost in a fantasy not thinking about my fucking empty ass bank account.

Whenever I do end up with free time now a days I just watch a movie or some shit.

Medal of Honor Allied Assault and Pacific Assault I remember being pretty good.

Sniper Elite V2 is a pretty rough-around-the-edges game but it's certainly fun.

Return to Castle Wolfenstein kicks ass, but adds ridiculous fantasy elements to the World War 2 setting so you might not be down with it. It's also unreasonably difficult and has a few shit forced stealth sections.

As for me, I want side-scrolling action platformers that are mostly melee-focused like Castlevania or Zelda 2. I'm writing the design document for a game such as this (albeit more linear) and want to see how other designers have done it. Preferably they'd also have ridiculous levels of violence - gibs, blood fountains, decapitations, all that good shit - since that's what I want in my game.
