Video game clichés you love

>Douring the final boss you have a unique weapon/skill available.

Wild arms 2 is possibly my favourite example of this.

Persona 5 R

They put up a teaser site months ago saying there would be news this month. March is almost over and I haven't heard of anywhere they'd make an announcement.

meta thread

Stop deleting the entire fucking friday night thread just because it is one second into saturday in the most-behind timezone you fucking faggots you can BUMPLOCK it if it is such a goddamn problem.

I like getting up in the morning and reading up on the later ones.

And god forbid FUN existed in the catalog.

It seems to me that (((SOMEONE))) is trying to slam that delete/bumplock button every time he thinks he has a goddamn excuse to do it in order to seem relevant or some shit.

Clearly >>16279004 proves that actually REMOVING the thread is not really neccessary (unless it is blatant cuckchan/spam/shit that shouldnt be here obviously), otherwise that shit would be gone as well. In other words, saying that it is saving month-old threads at the bottom of the catalog for another x hours is hardly a good excuse.

Also a reminder that the BO account was compromised and apparently that isn't a big deal.

TL;DR eat a huge bag of dicks faggot

Alright /v/ how’s shadows die twice? I’m a pretty big souls fan so I was thinking of getting it.

Guide to a happy Share Thread

Leechers

1. Before requesting,search online and even use distributed search engines e.g.InfraSearch,Opencola,YaCy,FAROO. See below for famous links.

2. Look first in the archives and volafile.

3. Be as specific as possible.If you have the cover art of the file you want,post it in both the share thread and in vola room.

4. Due to asshats in the thread,links to files will be purposely misleading (have spaces,lines,keys&passwords split in the post),including torrent hashes.

If you see a string of characters (e.g. c12fe1c06bba254a9dc9f519b335aa7c1367a88a) with or without dashes, it is a magnet link.

If your bittorrent is shit,prepend magnet:?xt=urn:btih: to the string.

a. Find and Replace (sed/tr/awk) is your friend.

Uploaders

1. When in doubt;upload,ask questions later.

2. Upload to many alternative sources (5+) and keep a local copy if space permits.

3. Use a URL shorterner (spaced or split) and/or paste relinks (e.g zerobin.net) on file links to confuse bots.

4. Encrypt your uploads now with a password,key, or generator.Rename the files something random, even their checksums.Maybe even pad files to the nearest GB or so,to confuse bots.

5. If your connection is stable,it is extremely advisable to self host. Using anonymity tools like Freenet,I2P,Gnunet,distributed NNTP or MixMinion/Mixmaster.

Volafile volafile.org/r/HF33Go

1. Before uploading a batch of miscellaneous files,e.g images and music be sure they are unique enough to stand on their own and that you ask for the majority's the consensus whether to upload the files individually.

2. Vola room owner edit- Upload 5 files and then zip the rest if the dump is larger then 6-7 files. Music Albums exceeding 5 files are to be zipped.When uploading .torrent, either add them to the a zip of the game or just don’t upload those misc files.Properly label files so that they can be identified without asking someone else.For lewd stuff with filenames like RJ74765 either add a .txt linking to the contents on a website or just add the title to the .txt e.g "BIG BOOTY WOMEN SIT ON SHOTA FACE (RJ34734)".

3. You can filter files by file type (.txt, .rar, etc) or search the file list with the bar hidden by the filter files button.

a. When in doubt,archive as a single [or split if too large],then upload.

Autistic/OCD hangups

What are some of your weird, autistic or OCD hangups about things especially relating to video games, video game accessories, or the handling thereof? I'll start with mine:

>be especially OCD about touching controllers, mice, and keyboards with oily hands or hands that recently touched food so have to wash hands before handling these

>if I turn in a certain direction (clockwise or counter-clockwise) I have to then turn the opposite way to balance out

>character stats have to be even points

>have to have mouse sensitivity set to the very exact point I'm comfortable with

Starbound: the Regret

Let's say I bought into the "excitement" for this game. Let's say it's sitting there, collecting dust and unleashing a horrid rank on my Steam library. Let's say, I already know how shit it is, and it's bored me to tears the further I got with it.

Now let's say I'm metaphorically sucking Todd Howard's lying, two-timing cock by wanting to go back give it another go. This time, with mods.

I know what you're all thinking;

>Kill yourself

>Mods can't polish a turd

>I hope you deepthroat his cock and gag on it until you suffocate

All very valid points. However, I know what I'm getting myself into, which is probably just a sinkhole of disappointment. Still, they journey beats the destination in any given case. All I wanna know is, during your unfortunate waste of time playing this giant pile of dead horse puree, what mods did you have installed for Starbound? Did they improve your experience at all? Are there enough mods out there that basically fulfill every wish Chucklefuck promised at the start? Or will it just crash and burn harder than when it's running?

ACE OF SPADES 0.75 GAMENIGHT: PART TIME KEBAB REMOVAL EDITION

>Why 0.75?

Because it's easier to host and these days more people bitch about not having openspades than about autoclimb and sprinting and so on. We'll be playing with a rifle only script most of the time, at least.

>How do I get the game?

Pick one of these:

The OpenSpades client is much more convenient overall and has improved graphics: http://openspades.yvt.jp/

The vanilla client is still usable if you're on a toaster and arguably still has a better aesthetic: https://www.buildandshoot.com/download/

>How do I join?

OpenSpades: run openspades.exe and type 4079007305 into the 'quick connect' bar at the top of the server browser (if you paste it rather than type it it might crash the launcher).

Vanilla client paste aos://4079007305 into your browser's address bar like any other link

Linuxfags using Wine: run "wine client.exe -aos://4079007305" in the terminal or use the launcher.

Macfags: Follow this tutorial: https://files.catbox.moe/42kw0s.jpg

>How do I take screenshots on openspades?

The default key is 0

Windows: %APPDATA%\OpenSpades\Resource

Linux: ~/.local/share/openspades/Resources

Gays: ~/Library/Application Support/OpenSpades/Resources

>How do I change my block color?

Arrow keys

>How do I look at the map?

M

>Why do I die on respawn?

That's probably the rifle only script, change your weapon to the rifle.

>Were you taught violence and extremism by video games, music, literature, cinema?

Yes, Spyro the dragon 3 taught me ethno-nationalism. Fortnite trained me to be a killer and to floss on the corpses of my enemies.

GDC award show still obsessed with gamergate

She assuming it is just an ugly woman and not a tranny I really can't tell anymore apparently wrote Sunless Sea and some no-name 'interactive fiction' game called 80 days. Why she was worthy of an award in the first place is beyond me.

>“I have always found it a little strange that the year my community – this community – chose to give an IGF award to a game that was anti-colonialist, anti-racist, unabashedly feminist, pointedly diverse, and, well, written by an Indian woman, was also the same year that our audiences were engulfed by GamerGate. And it felt, at that time, as if we rejected that campaign of hatred. But it’s actually never felt closer to me right now.

>“A mutated strain of that poison that made video games its testing ground, has bubbled up in Christchurch, New Zealand. It fueled a monster who went to a mosque with murder in his heart and if we don’t utterly, and vocally, and wholly reject these people, and Nazis, and fascists, and white supremacists, then we are inviting them in.

>“If we make room for them, then there is no room for anyone else. And what we represent here tonight, must stand in opposition to them, and we have to do it together. But rejecting hate is only half the battle. The other half of the battle, in its way, much harder, it is: how do we make people feel welcome? How do we keep them safe and happy, as well as whole?”

Why does everyone hate this game? I wish there were more games like this where its full of secrets and hidden things

Haven & Hearth General ~ /hhg/

"No thread in over a week" edition

>What the fuck is this shit

H&H is an survival MMO written in Java, published by two Swedes and held together by prayers and autism. You start naked and alone in the wilderness and must discover how to use the resources around to survive, building shelter, securing food, and always reaching towards higher stats, quality of life, and avoiding Russian kill squads. Growing crops takes literally real days, so mild planning and autism is a must.

>Sounds fun how do I play it?

Download the official client here to see if you like it:

http://www.havenandhearth.com

After fucking around with it for a bit, you might prefer a custom client, such as Amber, which basically makes you realize the vanilla client is unplayable shit:

Exclusives you actually wanted to try

People may talk a lot abour RDR, Bloodborne and sometimes for some stupid reason, The Last of Us and other stuff, but there are certain exclusives from whatever other platform that we were actually interested in.

Pictures related.

GaaS - Gaming as a Service

I fear for the absolute state of the future of gaming which will inevitably gravitate toward streaming (Games as a Service - GaaS). And if all control input latency issues can be 100% mitigated, you will eventually be telling your children of a time when you actually owned a physical or digital copy of your game.

All the casuals will be jumping on the streaming bandwagon because that's just the kind of shit casuals do. Additionally, with the emergence of dirt-poor millennials who are lucky to have a pot to piss in (let alone an expensive gaming console or rig), the demand for streaming games will be driven even higher. As demand for consoles and $3000 gaming rigs goes down, the prices of those items will be driven up which will further decrease the demand for physical gaming hardware as more and more gamers jump ship in favor of less the less-costly streaming option. The cycle will repeat until gaming hardware is too expensive for even the most privileged richfags.

It's inevitable. Being an oldfag who's been around since the Commodore/Atari eras, I've seen our games slowly slipping from our grasp as we went from physical copies to mostly digital copies and now heading toward not even owning a digital copy at all. Soon will be gone the days of pulling out an old console or building a retro gaming rig so you can play your old games. Once the rightsholders decide they want to make a game disappear, they just remove it from the streaming service and it's gone for good.

So fuck the future basically. It's going to suck for gaming and you cannot prove me wrong.

Old gaming rumors & mysteries

I remember looking for Bigfoot in GTA Andreas Andreas because of rumors and pre-youtube videos I found online. As silly as the Bigfoot in San Andreas was. I still enjoyed looking for it. Even if it doesn’t exist. Something about the outdoor areas in GTA San Andreas that made spooky and fun to explore. I always enjoy looking for cryptid like creature in video games. I wish more open world games have hidden monsters.

PCGamer reveals that they're paid shills yet again

Everyone knows that all these vidya outlets are corrupt, incestuous paid shilling networks at this point, but it takes a special kind of paid shill to willingly defend and run damage control for Tencent, the most malevolent, powerful and cancerous force in the video game industry, and overall a massive danger to the world.

The Epic Store is a shitty meme and a hot anti-consumer mess, but it wouldn't be worth caring much about if it weren't for Tencent's involvement (Read: practical/de facto ownership of Epic).

https://archive.fo/FHykL

Now Epic is tired of the narrative that Tencent controls them, funnily enough. More people don't like Tencent than are expected so they want to cast off the whole "Tencent is Evil" and "Tencent is controlling us" narrative simultaneously with this embarrassingly bad and contradicting puff piece. Apparently they were laughed and mocked at the GDC and PC Gamer had to come in to the rescue with this.

>During a public Q&A at the Game Developers Conference this week with Epic Games Store leaders Steve Allison, Sergey Galyonkin, and Joe Kreiner, a GDC 2019 attendee invoked a claim that's appearing more frequently in Reddit threads, tweets, and discussions of the company: that Tencent, which invested in Epic in 2013, 'actually' runs the company.

>"[I'm] wondering if it was Tencent's idea to abandon Unreal Tournament's community?" the expo attendee quipped.

>After letting the audience laugh through the awkward tension in the room, Epic Store lead Steven Allison gave a firm response. "Tencent has no, zero, input into our business. They do not talk to us about what we are doing. They don't suggest what we should be doing. They don't make any decisions for us. They are not in our building. Everything we do is with our team, and the final point of conversation when it goes up to the top is Tim [Sweeney, CEO]. And Tim does not take any orders from Tencent. Believe me."

>In 2013, well before Fortnite became a global entertainment phenomenon, Tencent acquired a 40 percent ownership in Epic for $330 million. Tencent's gaming portfolio is vast: it completely owns Riot Games, Clash of Clans maker Supercell, and holds a 5 percent interest in Ubisoft.

>"Obviously there was a significant investment that [Tencent] made in the company a few years ago, and we like them as a company, and they're a partner of ours, but they're not running our business," Allison continued. "They are not in the building. We don't share anything with them. In fact, we compete with them. They run PUBG. We compete with them."

>"Epic is an American company," said Sweeney in a tweet from January. "There are investors and equity holders from all around the world, including Tencent in China. It’s normal for companies of this scale have international shareholders."

So tl;dr they got laughed at at the GDC and are being increasingly mocked and distrusted and feel that they need to show off their "total autonomy". Ignore the fact that according to the same guy last month, Tencent's directors are people who have helped "make Epic what it is today" and are "Super Valuable contributors". Never mind that a Chinese mega-conglomerate owns a near-controlling interest, with the only other person challenging them being Tim Sweeney himself and you can't fucking ignore a 40+% stakeholder's demands. They're "totally American" though. I'm sure Tencent's money-grubbing and devious goals don't align with Epic's at all.

What a fucking joke.

Epic wont accept "Crappy Games"

>"We'll have a quality standard that doesn't accept crappy games," he said. "We'll accept reasonably good quality games, of any scale, whether small indie games to huge triple-A games, and we'll take everything up to, like, an R-rated movie or an M-rated game. A GTA game would be fine to us, but Epic's not going to distribute porn games or bloatware or asset flips, or any sort of thing that's meant to shock players.

No porn games, no indie games with dated graffix, nothing non-kosher goyim, just install our gook spyware and die goyim!

Stadia/steaming the next big crash?

Is anyone even excited for Stadia that isn’t a game journalist.? The streamings television bubble alone is about to burst. The whole steaming gaming service smells of the next expensive industry fad. This industry lost billions when journalists said Facebook gaming was the future. The same thing happensh with the VR market. But I think game streaming will be the most expensive crash of them all. There a reason why no one remembers Onlive.

Fullderp: Premature Evacuation edition

What's this all about?

Fullderp is a game where one of us declares himself the champ and takes a ragtag team of six Pokemon assembled by anons into an online competitive Pokemon battling simulator.

To quote one of Showdown's mods…

>@MacChaeger: None of these people are youtubers

>@MacChaeger: They impersonate verlis to to gain notoriety and attract new members

>@MacChaeger: These people regularly trick others into getting locked

>@MacChaeger: this is the single most toxic group of players on PS

Can I give the champ something?

Of course. If we've got a champ, feel free to come in and watch and give him something when he calls for a new team. No experience necessary, and everything's done in-browser.

How does it work?

When the current champ calls "new champ", the first poster to claim it is our champ. The first six legal Pokemon suggested once champ has been claimed or "new team" has been called will be the team our champ uses to battle.

Suggesters are not to make multiple suggestions for a team unless 15 minutes have passed since their last request, or unless the champ specifically asks for resuggests.

The champ will be battling in Smogon OU unless he specifies otherwise.

——————————————————————

The Rules:

Failure to follow the rules will result in IMPEACHMENT and/or BULLYING.

1. The champ cannot forfeit or intentionally throw a match.

2. The champ may not edit a set without the suggester's permission.

3. All Pokemon must be nicknamed.

4. The champ is not allowed to timer stall.

5. If someone resuggests before 15 minutes have passed since their last suggest, the champ must ignore it.

6. The champ should replace resuggests with fresh suggests that come in later.

7. If champ gives himself Smogon sets, he's a faggot.

Doom Overhauls & Mods

Been on a classic Doom mod kick lately, wanting to try the likes of Solace Dreams, and Metroid: Dreadnought. Problem is, my current rig is bottlenecked by a Radeon R7 250x made by XFX, so that makes the voxel and open-air sections of Solace Dreams take quite a hit to the framerate. Not to be deterred, I remembered there being a Metroid Prime mod back in 2014, and found someone made a small level pack to go with it. Unfortunately, no matter what I did, GZDoom wouldn't load the .RAR for it. So I tried to write a batch file that connects to both .PK3 files. While it allowed the HUD and main menu to load, it just took me into the standard Doom II levels. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here, but if anyone has an idea, I'm willing to listen.

I also have QZDoom and LZDoom on hand, and haven't tried them yet. If you wanna check out Metroid Dreadnought yourself, check here;

https://www.doomworld.com/forum/topic/102240-metroid-dreadnought-overhaul-15c-beta-21319/

So with all the buzz about DMC5, i'd like to get into the series, what's the best one to Pirate On PC?

Questionable Design Decisions

Last OP was a faggot, let's get an actually good thread going.

Discuss half-assed attempts or aspects thrown into video games by developers. Not so much about flaws, but otherwise confusing inclusions which could be argued in both ways.

>Okami

>Certain Stray Beads become inaccessible after progressing too far into the game

>This progression sometimes has no indication

For what purpose? Is it supposed to incentivize me to replay the game? Why should I be forced to go after certain objectives or otherwise have the threat of having them taken away? Shouldn't I be able to experience all of the game whenever I want to about it? I get it's included, because the world does change as you play and this is supposed to emphasize that, but still, it seems odd to block off players from content in any way. At what point should games be pushed for artistic or aesthetic merit?

I wonder if there are any passion project games with similar or as questionable choices, or if these are more of an indicator of corporate meddling. I don't know, seems to me almost every game can have some sort of element or aspect about it which someone will find jarring or odd, in which case I'll be interested to see what you think or what you would consider to be a questionable design choice.

And maybe discuss how they could've been improved or what could've been done instead.

vidya OC thread

ITT: Post vidya OC that you have personally made.

Here's a quick Luma sketch I did just now. As you can see, I'm not the best drawfag around, so don't be shy to share any OC you created. It's probably gonna be 10 times better than whatever I can create anyways.

Also, to the one anon who said he drew Luma artwork, I'd be happy to see what you made.

>The Prophets are based on the lying ways of the Jews from the New Testament and their betrayal of Jesus

>The Elites are based on Muslims and how dangerous their fundamentalism is with The Arbiters original name being "darvesh", a holy Muslim name

>Masterchief, the OP and perfect character is based on Jesus with his code name John 117 being a direct reference to Jesus

How the living FUCK did Bungie get away with it? How are there not SJWs, Muslims and Jews protesting online making articles about how problematic this series is? This game even has Race Wars, Genocide and Jihad as it's main themes.

VTMB2 trailer

Q1 2020 for PS4/XBO/PC

It'll be shit like the first one.

Is there any possible way to play these gems that doesn't involve older consoles or emulators? My PS2/Xbox/Gamecube are currently not accessible and I've never had much luck with emulators. A link to a solid emulator guide would work, maybe it'll mention something I haven't tried.

Also general ARPG/hack-n-slash thread if anyone is interested, because it's a cool genre.

TES IV OBLIVION: Where Dem Orc Women At?

Still no porn mods.

>why should I play Oblivion? Why not Skyrim or Morrowind?

Because Oblivion is its own little. Skyrim is Oblivion reduced and simplified. Morrowind is Oblivion without the fun ragdoll spasms and movement. Modded Oblivion is entertaining and actually has wild enemies and crazy dungeons to explore. MMM gives you over a hundred creatures. Better Cities adds a fuctkon to explore in the cities. OOO makes the game challenging.

>what do I need to have fun modding?

Get Oblivion Mod Manager. Get BOSS GUI. Get Wyre Bash.

After this, you're going to want to get patches like the unoffical oblivion patch. You're going to want to get a few crash fixes. 4gb ram patcher. OBSE Script Extender. CTD and Memory patch ENBoost. EngineBugFixes. Menu Alt-Tab Crash Fix. Oblivion Stutter Remover. NVAC - New Vegas Anti Crash.

>That's a lot to do. What if I install these and it's still crashing?

Remember to use BOSS GUI to sort load order. If there are still constant crashing, use Wyre Bash to make a bashed patch. If that doesn't resolve anything, it's time to delete a few of the mods with Oblivion Mod Manager. You can get all this stuff at Nexus Mods.

>what mods are essential?

Before you're going to do any modding, you need to have all the DLC expansions. This can be bought in the GOTY edition. Oscure's Oblivion Overhaul, MMM, and Better Cities are all good. Alluring Potions and Alluring Beverages makes potions aesthetic as fuck. You're going to want the NPC mods to make the world feel less empty. Supreme Magicka to balance out magic… Get Better Dungeons while you're at it.

NPC Mods:

Roaming NPCs.

TamrielTravelers. (One thing causes crashes, but that can easily be unchecked and disabled. TamrielTravelersItems, which can be unchecked in Oblivion Mod Manager in a box; causes conflicts for me).

Populated Prisons.

Tavern Goers.

Crowded Cities.

NPC mods make the game feel less empty. It is the biggest problem I have with the game: emptiness.

Kenshi Thread - Kung Fu Lizard Waifu Edition

Killed an elder beak thing today. Feels pretty good. Not as good as when I'm going to find the leader of the skin niggers and throw him in his own peeler.

What are you guys up to?

I have the Epic Launcher because I am learning UE4 among other things and I got assets that I can add to my projects, has anyone discovered any way to block the launcher from accessing stuff it shouldn't? namely my Steam information?

Vampire Masquerade Bloodlines 2

>“The character creator, which players get to use twice – once at the start to define your human aspects and then a second time later in the game to flesh out your vampire – goes way beyond basic male and female models. Body type, gender pronouns, employment history and fashion can all be toyed with for a very modular build.”

Hellmoo thread

God damn this game

I go supposing you all know about MUDs and MOOs and maybe know about HellMOO

This MOO looks quite fantastic, some post-apocalyptic game like fallout but without restrains.

I found out about it recently and it's quite the blast, the first things and last in my first life was tearing open stuffed animals to find beers, crack and weed ad my ripe old age of 10 in an orphanage, I then sniffed some and went up to punch Billy or whatever in the face and ended killing him, or her since the appraisal shown that it was a girl.

I then went to the hall where some other orphans lived and pissed on that one that said i'm a fat that sucked dicks.

I then went to the heating room and died while going inside the furnace

There's some room for fun shit

Blizzcuck's Classic is looking more and more like a failure before launch (it saddens me to say that as I am an autistic WoW player). QA layoffs, sharding and loot sharing are all bad signs. It looks like (((Activision))) will be taking a bigger decision role as well.

Burning Crusade is a chance to play some fun 10 mans like Karazhan and Zul Aman while still not completely cucking to the casualization of the game

Also because you have nothing better to do.

Re-designs and updates.

Characters will never look the same, because time passes and companies update or tweak their appearances according to new technology, or re-design them according to new trends and whatnot. Which of them would you consider good, and which of them bad? Which have stood the test of time, and which ones have aged like milk?

I really like KOF99 Athena, she looks quite cute with short hair, and that simple outfit gives her a nice combination of cute and hot. I played the REmake recently and can't believe how well those designs have aged.

QUESTIONS

>Which game to begin the series with?

Start with Re;Birth 1 to test the waters, then play Re;Birth 2 and/or Re;Birth 3 (with the Re;Translations), and then V-II.

>I've heard of bad translations in the Neptunia games, care to tell me more about it?

Translation Statuses are:

HDN, HDN Mk2 and Victory: NISA cancer.

Re;Birth 1 and V-II: Translation is alright, no worries from these ones.

Re;Birth 2: Not obviously bad at the start, but gets much worse as it goes along: in particular Neptune and Ram were screwed hard during localization. However, there is a Re;Translation made on our very own board (see above links).

Re;Birth 3: Better than the original NISA translation in Victory but still quite a lot of cancer. Main game has been retranslated, translators still required to translate DLC content.

All of the spin-offs: Varying translation quality. These range from cancer to mediocre. Recent releases have been somewhat better overall.

>I'm too poor to buy the games, where do I grab them?

Game where the antagonist isn't powerful.

Like the main villain at any point could be easily defeated in a 1v1 by the main cast if ever given the chance but their strategies constantly outplay the protagonists.

Maybe even one of their subordinates is actually the super powerful one who the protagonists cannot beat but the subordinate believes in the end goals of the antagonist to help them achieve them.

Are there any games that accomplish this?

Are there any good games with a surreal sort of humor to them? Can a game be funny to begin with?

Nipponese games from the Showa era

With the Heisei era ending next month. Let's talk about games from the Showa era (1926-Jan 7 1989) while it's still the previous era! What classics do you think still hold up?

The Genesis barely makes the cutoff but the only games for it that do are Space Harrier II, Super Thunder Blade, Osomatsu-kun: Hachamecha Gekijō and Altered Beast. The SNES and Game Boy miss the mark entirely.

Female villains

Who is the best female villain in vidya? I think its the dark queen from battletoads. Elexis was pretty good too.

Sekiro: better gameplay edition

It's almost surreal to see how good a Japanese vidya journalist is at playing a game vs a western (((journalist))).

Halo's head developer says diversity attracts diversity

>As a female leader in a male-dominated industry, Microsoft's Bonnie Ross recognizes the value of cultivating a diverse staff. Ross runs 343 Industries, Microsoft's subsidiary studio that manages the Halo video game franchise. She told 60 Minutes that gamers want to immerse themselves in fictional worlds, which often means choosing avatars that look like themselves.

>"Across Xbox, we are really deliberate in making sure that we have opportunities for people to play the way they want to play," Ross tells 60 Minutes correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi. "And that does impact diversity and gender, what you look like, what your skin color is, what size body you have. And we try and make sure that you can play how you want to play."

>To achieve that range within the games, Ross says she needs to make sure her staff is also diverse. In the video above, she tells Alfonsi that it's important for women to be on the development side in gaming so they can shape diverse characters and storylines. Ross also explained how she thinks the first-person shooter game Halo has been impacted now that she runs the show. "I think diversity does attract diversity," Ross says. "So I think we have a more diverse team than in the past, which I think the team actually really appreciates. And I also think that diverse teams do kind of create a more diverse output, diverse thinking, and innovation on where you're going."

Super Metroid: 25 years

SUPER FUCKING METROID BABY

On March 19th 1994 Super Metroid was released in Japan for the Super Famicom. Following mediocre sales in Japan, the game was a big hit in over in the west. Being available on the Wii U and the 3DS nowadays - or the internet if you aren't an idiot - the game is still sold and played to this day. Today, Super Metroid celebrates her 25th birthday.

So, what are you playing? Vanilla? Romhack? On original hardware, or emulating? Any specific category/route or goals you have for yourself?

Another game, perhaps? Maybe ZM or Prime? First time player or played every game?

Looking forward to Prime 4? What are you expecting? Any opinions on the development switch?

Do you like Metroid beyond the game? Have any merch or do you make art or music of the series?

Still playing AM2R? Fan patches applied? Hope for any more fangames? Super Paper Metroid?

Let's celebrate SM's birthday and have a thread about Metroid. I'll post some art, wallpapers and scores later.

Also,

Hideaki Itsuno Was Ready To Leave Capcom After DmC: Devil May Cry

We have quite the number of DMC threads, but I think this warrants it's own thread.

>On 14th March, YouTube channel Toy Bounty Hunters uploaded a two-hour long interview session with well-reputed actor Reuben Langdon who has been the voice of Dante since Devil May Cry 3. In the interview, the actor revealed how Series Director Hideaki Itsuno almost resigned from Capcom following the release of DmC: Devil May Cry.

>“He was ready to leave Capcom”, Reuben said. “He was not happy. And I think he put in his resignation and then they said wait-wait, you’re a valuable guy (and) we don’t want you to leave. What can make you stay?”

>In the words of Reuben, Itsuno demanded a Devil May Cry game. Itsuno had a wishlist and Devil May Cry was on the top of his wishlist. He said he’ll stay if Capcom let him do a Devil May Cry game the way he wanted to do it. Reuben further commented, “Hats off to him(Itsuno) and hats off to Capcom for going all out and they literally gave him everything he requested and wanted for this game. And it’s paying off.”

Castlevania

I've just 100%'d Curse of the Moon and I'm curious if there are more Classicvania-type games that I can play, since I've played just about every Classicvania outside of the handheld ones and Adventure Rebirth.

Curse of the Moon was really nice, but why was it so easy? I expected Dracula's Curse levels of difficulty going in and what I got was something where you take very little damage and the only time I died was to getting shoved off a platform, despite playing like ass.

I do liked the Rondo of Blood type taking you down with me attack the bosses did, but they had way too little health and really easy attack patterns, especially with how much movement variety is given to you regardless if you go with a full party or upgraded katana man.

Also what was with Nightmare Mode's ending? Was that a reference to something that isn't Mega Man?

Also also, when the fuck is Ritual of the Moon coming out?

Also also also, when the fuck is Wallachia Reign of Dracula coming out? I'm sick of devs who don't update their websites and post updates on trash like Facebook, Twitter or a tumblr page instead of their own god damn websites.

Phoenix Point has a 1 year timed exclusivity deal with the Epic Store

Games made by hobbyists for fun and not money or politics

I've been out of the loop and I'm sure plenty of other anons caught up in vidya politics have fallen out of the loop as well. Can some anons interested in breathing hope into the community mention projects they know of ITT?

I don't necessarily mean open-source games only, either. Things like Cave Story or Yume Nikki before the devs sold out count too.

Japanese Learning Thread: パジャマパーティ Edition

>I'm completely new, where do I start?

Learn the Kana. Start with Hiragana and then move on to Katakana. Yes, you need both, and yes stroke order is important. Use Realkana or Kana Invaders for spaced repetition. Alternatively, you can use the Anki deck, but I'd recommend the first two. Tae Kim has a Kana diagram on his website, and you can use KanjiVG for pretty much any character.

>Alright, I know the Kana. Now what?

You have to learn vocabulary and grammar in order to speak and understand the language. Some will tell you to grind the Core2k/6k deck until you're blue in the face, others will tell you that grammar is more important. Truth is, you need both, but it doesn't really matter which one you decide to do first. You're teaching yourself here, so you move at your own pace and do what you're most receptive to. If you want grammar first, then Tae Kim has a great introductory grammar guide, there are numerous grammar related videos in Anon's all-in-one-Anki-package, IMABI has an active forums and an abundance of information on grammar, and there's always YouTube if you're lazy. On the other hand, if you want to learn vocab first, then grab the Core2k/6k and grind until you're blue in the face. For mnemonics, see Kanji Damage.

>Well this is great and everything, but I still need more help

Ask in this thread.

Threadly reminder:

YOU CAN LEARN JAPANESE

Don't come to tell us about Duolingo, we know that it exists and it is generally frowned upon for using a contrascientific new-aged hippie didactic philosophy, and is designed feel as effortless as possible, even at the expense of actually learning anything.

A physical release is better than none. It is unusual that they weren't able to do a digital copy when indie games are one of the other features of the system.

>Unofficial translation patches for Blue Reflection and Steins;Gate Elite released

https://archive.fo/jAbVB

And as usual they are mirrored in the OP.

Not specified in OP last time, so I'll also spotlight that there is a 3.69 and 3.70 jailbreak prepared but not disclosed. It is also possible to downgrade on 3.68 and lower in most situations. Game firmware version requirements are also totally irrelevant thanks to reF00D. Modernize your system!

STAY ON 3.60 OR 3.65! DON'T UPDATE BEYOND 3.68, FAILING THAT, 3.70!!!

Ace Attorney Multiplayer /v/

Hey v, if you have any taste for murder mysteries and games that rely on teamwork between players, how about trying Ace Attorney Multiplayer?

>tldr me on what is this

It's Ace Attorney, a game where you play through murder trials to defend someone unjustly accused of murder. But the real point of the trial is not to prove them innocent, but rather to find the real killer by listening to the witnesses and pointing out who is lying.

In the original single-player game by CAPCOM you can only be a defense attorney. Here in the multiplayer version every single role is occupied by a real person, meaning you can be judge, prosecutor, witness, detective, bailiff, assistant of defense or prosecution, even stenographer. It is a paradise for anyone interested in murder mysteries.

>I don't want to play a game that relies heavily on player interaction with normalfags

Halfchan has a server, and considering a match needs ~10 players to get started it is a good thing to get as many people as possible. Join the "Attorney Online Vidya" server when you're in

Future For Street Fighter

It's well known that Yoshinori Ono has gone on record saying that he's been simplifying Street fighter's mechanics and core gameplay ever since 4 so SF can reach a wider audience. A big complaint of 5 is the lack of depth, but since 4 was so widely acclaimed he continued to simplify SF, but with 5 instead of improving upon the core design it's just a continuation of simplification. My main worry is that since 4 was so widely acclaimed and since 5 is popular as well, literally being on Disney Channel albeit their sub channel, that we'll never see a return to the mechanical depth let alone any sort of improvement on the core that SF used to have, all for the sake of "reaching a wider audience". Is there any hope to see a return?

Comfy

Let's talk about what video games you consider comfy and what exactly makes a game comfy for you. I'm going to give three features in video games that always make it incredibly comfy for me.

>Non-direct involvement in the game

Example: Duskers

I love when a game allows me to control different things from a point of safety while all the danger is outside of my place. This doesn't just mean games that allow me to control units like RTS, no, I mean games that create actual environment, or at least the illusion of environment that I sit in in safety while others do the dangerous stuff for me. Duskers is a perfect example, it's a horror game where you play as a space pilot, sitting in a ship in a completely dead galaxy, flying from ship to ship and gathering resources by sending bots. The entire game is done through the interface of your ship computer, so you do in a way feel as if you are in a ship. Duskers is also an example for another feature which is

>The contrast between safety and terror

Example: Duskers, S.T.A.L.K.E.R kind of but not really

I love when a game has visibly contrasting moments of horror and safety, in Duskers that feeling is conveyed by the previous feature, after all you are technically safe in your ship, unless you fuck something up, which creates both tension and a sense of safety. S.T.A.L.K.E.R kind of does it as well, when the actual stalker camps are relatively safe, and it feels like a nice rest from all the terror of the Zone though it's not exactly what I'm looking for in a comfy game, although it makes the game partially comfy

>Vehicles with actual environments you can walk in

Example: Outer Wilds, Minecraft in the past when the Zeppelin Mod was still a thing

This must be done at least from third person, preferably from the first person but whenever a game is done from a vehicle that you can walk in, it feels incredibly comfy. Especially if that vehicle is a bit bigger in case of Outer Wilds it's small, but still. Bonus points for being able to get out and inside the vehicle again. What makes this incredibly comfy for me, is that it feels like taking a portable house on your adventure, so you still get the best of the two worlds, you have a comfy settlement you can always rest in, but you do not miss out on all the fun of adventuring.

What about you /v/, do you have any features in games that you consider comfy? Do you know of any games that tick at least one of the three boxes I mentioned?

>Want a New Tribes like game

>Midair comes out

>Casual shits on this board can't figure out how to Jetpack

>Game dies despite /v/ swearing up and down that they would play a New Tribes like game

This is why the genre will never come back. We don't deserve fast.

You ever notice the most diehard blizzdrones are all scandinavians/slavs?

Everytime i visit a videogame forum that has users list their location, god knows why, and i see someone coming to rabid defend of actiblizzion titles like world of warcraft or hearthstone its almost always a case nowadays that their location is listed as Sweden, Norway, or some bumblefuck nowhere area like the czech republic.

You would think its a case of "it runs on toasters and theirs not much to do in those frozen shitholes but drink and play WoW" and that was probably true ten years ago but with the rise of f2p trash and the french as the new ultimate shit tier that replaced eastern europeans surely there has to be more to why the more hick heavy nations are still stuck on that gangrenous teat to this day right?
